Life for me at the moment is filled with ups and downs. I am still mid way through a bitter and expensive custody battle with my childrens father, which is a constant negative stress in my day to day life and I missed my godsons first day of kindergarten because he lives on the other side of the country. I never wanted to be an Aunt (or a god mother} who was just a person in a picture or a voice down the phone and to miss seeing him in his school uniform for the first time ever was hard.
On a brighter note I have since moved from the Yr 6 class to being in Kindy, which is both exciting and tiring all at the same time. These kids are go go go but I am liking trying something new and hopefully when I do start my teaching degree again this month, it will be helpful having been in classrooms with first 12 yr olds and now 4 yr olds.
My children have eased back into school life with ease. They are in YR 3,4 and 5 this year and have definitely settled into Broome life.
I love that school starts at 8 am and finishes at 2pm.
I love the early morning thunderstorms while your snuggled up in bed.
I love that in Broome you can wear shorts and singlets year round and you don't have all your winter jackets taking up all the room in your wardrobe.
I love the people I work with and all the children and parents.
Its gonna be a good year....I can feel it in my bones
